Default Which Nassau & Freeport Hotels Offer Day?

My sister is going on her first cruise this April with me. She ripped her tendon in her ankle & is using a boot on her foot. I am a future bilateral knee replacement patient in the future so we are making a great pair on this cruise. I am trying to figure out since we can't do a ton of walking which hotels might offer day passes to sit by the pool or beach and what the day pass will cost. Anyone who has recently done this know?

Here is a tour you might enjoy.. Blackbeard's Beach Break

Named after the infamous pirate, Blackbeard’s Cay features fun for the whole family.

On this excursion you will:


Board a motor-powered catamaran for a relaxing 25-minute voyage.
Cruise through picturesque Nassau Harbour en route to Blackbeard’s Cay.
Recline and unwind in a lounge chair while enjoying the beautiful view of Cable Beach.
Frolic in the pristine waters and dance in the brilliant white sand.
Play a friendly game of volleyball and basketball or visit the Bacardi Beach Bar for the island specialty.

You wouldn't need to do anything else there except lounge and enjoy the beach.

Is that excursion expensive? And where do you find it ? The Carnival site?

The British Colonial Hilton is the big hotel right next to the pier.
It is a quiet, business hotel, with no motorized watersports and very few kids.
If you are looking for a short walk from the ship, their daypass runs $15 per person, for use of their pool, beach and kayaks, floats, etc.. (also give you a towel)
We have done the BCH on both of our trips to Nassau this year.

A local from Nassau on another board, is reporting that after all 3 Cable Beach Hotels changed ownership, they are now also charging $15 a day for the daypass for use of their facilities. (this would be a better choice, if you want a little bit more activity and some motorized watersports.

Breezes on Cable Beach has an all inclusive daypass for $55 I believe it is. Food, drinks, etc.. is included in the price.

For any of the Cable Beach choices, you can catch the #10 Jitney (bus) at the McDonalds across the street from the Hilton, for $1 (exact change) each way.

The BCH is a 10 minute walk from your ship's gangplank to the end of the pier.

Hopr this helps.
